Since the start of January Tiger girl has been going for Swimming classes weekly with the boys. She has always been interested in swimming and was really excited to finally start classes. No longer has she to wait around while her brothers are having their swim class. She can participate in class now that she is turning four.
Tiger girl was initially rather apprehensive about being in the class by herself. Even though she knew that I was waiting around watching her she wanted me beside her when the lesson was on.
She didn’t really want to follow what the swimming instructor was teaching and join the group. It took a lot of coaxing on my part to get her to try and take part in the activities.
I guess she was quite selective in the activities that she wanted to participate. Tiger girl readily joined in this activity of picking up the toys from the pool with the other classmates.
She enjoyed herself picking up the hoops that were scattered all around the pool. I guess all kids love playing games in the water.
It was fun watching how the kids hurried around to pick up the toys. Most of them were very comfortable with the water and weren’t scared to lower their body and head into the water to pick things up.
Tiger girl’s swim class is relatively small with about 4-5 kids to an instructor. Pouring water on her head is something which she likes to do and this was one of the activities that she participated in.
One of the activities that they had in the 45 minute class was blowing bubbles. Tiger girl was reluctant to do so and had to be coaxed by letting her hold on to the purple ring while doing so. (Purple is one of her favourite colors)
The 45 minute class flew by very fast and before she knew it the lesson was over. Tiger girl is eagerly looking forward to her weekend swimming class now after experiencing her first swimming lesson.
Do your kids love swimming too?
